Developing a Revitalized Educational System.
Reller, Theodore L.
This chapter focuses attention on (1) the major constraints that have prevented a more prompt and adequate attack on the problems of big cities, (2) the major issues involved in moving to meet the problem, and (3) guidelines for doing so; and proposes and evalutes a number of alternatives for resolving the basic issues. The author emphasizes the development of a viable system through which the present and emerging needs of great cities can be met. Alternatives for resolving those State/large city issues examined are: (1) maintaining the present situation; (2) nationalizing the big city systems; (3) providing for direct State operation of schools; (4) strengthening State education agencies; (5) developing and implementing a comprehensive State plan to enable the State to meet the State/large city issue; (6) developing a metropolitan government structure for education; and (7) developing a comprehensive program involving State and metropolitan action aimed at structure, redefinition of respective responsibilities, finance, and instruction.
